First Eucharist and Reconciliation
Congratulations as your child prepares to receive the sacraments of First Eucharist and First Reconciliation. It is typically in the 2nd grade that our children prepare for and receive these sacraments, but it happens that older children also are preparing for reception of these sacraments. Following direction from our Archbishop, our children first receive the Sacrament of Eucharist during the Sunday Masses following Easter. In 2019, the weekends for First Eucharist will be April 25/26th and May 2nd/3rd. You are welcome to choose any Mass during those two weekends for your child's First Eucharist.
